Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Late-80s and 90s JGB

For the most part, I find that regardless of what was going on with the GD, Jerry's band was almost always solid, and I also feel that the late-80s and early 90s were a particularly good period for JGB. Maybe not their best era, but still very good.

I am wondering if those of you who avoid 80s and 90s GD shows ever listen to JGB shows from that period.

Yes. And I wished he had dropped the GD and concentrated on JGB/Grisman type stuff because I think he might still be here if he had. HOwever, even JGB was getting too big - he went from rooms like the Stone to Hampton Coliseum like what seemed overnight (a true overnite sensation -dynamo).

Grisman maybe, but Kahn was his smack buddy. I love his bass playing, but generally speaking, I don't think touring with JK was a good thing for Jerry's health.

probably true re kahn, but a junkie will score no matter what. and for jerry, i'm sure there were plenty of people coming around to offer some so they could hang with him.

yes, Jerry band stuff is pretty solid right up to at least '94, i haven't listened to anything he did in '95; although, even with the side-project stuff, i do tend to concentrate on listening to recordings from the '74-'84 era

I haven't heard anything from 95 either, but I saw JGB in November '93, and he sounded great.
